Combining data from the CoRoT and Kepler/K2 satellites with photometric observations, the Australian-Danish Strömgren Survey for Asteroseismology and Galactic Archaeology (SAGA) is determining accurate masses, radii, temperatures, metallicities, distances and ages of stars in different fields of our Galaxy. These results are providing a new benchmark to calibrate models of galactic evolution in different regions of the Milky Way and revealing the main physical processes that have shaped our Galaxy into what we see today.
